About me
I have been an undergraduate at University of Wales Trinity Saint David for the past three years and am currently at the end of my BA (Hons) in Graphic Design. Across the three years I have become proficient in the use of the industry software, and can confidently use InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, and After Effects. My design work covers a range of different visual styles from minimal to complex and although particularly drawn to work designed for print, I can also design for digital platforms. I enjoy working closely with brand owners to help realise their company’s vision and showcase it to its full potential.

  • Our World
    Our WorldOur World is a children's styling head that allows the child to be creative and create whoever they would like to create.

The styling head is androgynous in appearance and comes with a range of accessories. The aim of the product is to normalise at a younger age the idea that everyone i

    Elan Valley Distillery - Botanically Infused GinElan Valley Distillery produce personalised Gin that is botanically infused. They are situated in the Elan Valley and use locally grown botanicals to infuse the gin. The gin is tailored to each persons taste and can be personalised.

  • The Bee's Needs
    The Bee's NeedsThis is a project that allows people to find their local beekeepers to support them, as well as connecting existing and start up beekeepers. It also educates the public on ways they can support their local beekeeper. The website features a forum with a ranking system that brings together the beekeeping community, the most experienced beekeepers profiles obtain a crown much like a 'queen bee' and can share their experience and advice with others.
  • The Rocky Horror Picture Show - Sweet Transvestite Animation
    The Rocky Horror Picture Show - Sweet Transvestite AnimationThe brief was to pick a sound clip and create an animation using this clip. This had to be completed using the software 'After Effects'. I wanted to choose a clip that has a lot of imagery that I can add illustrations to . I thought that 'Sweet Transvestite' from the 'Rocky Horror Picture Show' Would be perfect for this project. My animation features typefaces shown in the film, as well as characters and an overall horror theme. Take a look below and enjoy the show!
